March 2021 Newsletter

Dear NTMA Members,

Happy March 370th everyone! I cannot believe it has been a full year since COVID-19 dramatically changed the way we do business. The vaccine roll out has been fragmented along state, county, and even municipality lines. This has created some confusion as to when manufacturers can get the vaccine. The NTMA advocates for our members at the local and regional level to ensure that all members have information and access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Ideally, local officials can help manufacturers cut through red tape, and make it easier for us to get vaccine appointments. We will be conducting outreach to local officials within the coming weeks and providing updated information/resources for all members. Please reach out if you would like us to contact your local elected officials on your behalf.

John Lohse and I would like to welcome our newest NTMA member, Prieto Machine Co., Inc. in Warminster, PA.  Like so many of our members, the Prieto family is part of the history, and the future of American manufacturing. Welcome to Bob Prieto and everyone at Prieto Machine.  

Have you filled out our surveys yet?  We hope to use the capabilities information as a member resource on the new website and it will also help us with our meeting planning.  Are you new to manufacturing or are you seasoned and eager to share your knowledge and experiences?  Mentorship strengthens our workforce – please consider the value of being mentored, and of being a mentor.  Questions about the surveys?  Please email me.

Michelle Martin is working out the details for our 2021 Golf Tournament.  We promise to have details out to you as soon as we have everything confirmed.  We are scheduled for Wednesday, June 9, 2021at the Yardley Country Club.
